Won’t you come along and join the River Road Team to help Camp Alkulana prepare for their campers this summer? If you are interested in participating, please contact Bill Rusher (804-285-1087).
We are thrilled to pass along the news that, as of April 6, 2015, Camp Alkulana has been added to the National Register of Historic Places!
Our own Fred Anderson writes these beautiful words in the Foreword to the book Come Along, Join Our Song which was recently published to help celebrate Camp Alkulana’s 100th Anniversary: “Camp Alkulana, the retreat set in rural Bath County which has provided a summertime experience for inner-city Richmond youth, turns one-hundred, and holds up its magical presence for the thousands of ‘Bright Eyes’ who have played on its grounds, splashed in its stream, fellowshipped in the cabins with newly made friends and, along the way, learned some of life’s best lessons. Camp Alkulana is a success story – a uniquely American, distinctly Christian, proudly Baptist story with its primary focus upon influencing the lives of one city’s youth. It is more than a place. It is a feeling.”
